Prevent premature equipment wear, container crush damage and scuffing.

PressureQC + Scuff Masitek Smart sensor can

Measure pressure and scuff to inform maintenance decisions, reduce aesthetic damage to cans and maximize filling cycles from returnable glass.

Pressure, friction, and scuffing on the line causes wear marks on containers and reduces the number of filling cycles of returnable glass.

Damage from squeeze load is impossible to measure without PressureQC™+ Scuff, the industry’s only scuff measurement. Actionable data can inform maintenance decisions such as lubrication and conveyor adjustments. Container damage from friction, particularly in aluminum cans, can also be alleviated.

How the process works:

Outfitted with pressure sensitive film, PressureQC™ + Scuff smart sensor replicas are placed on the line to measure scuff for glass and canning industries. Location beacons identify where to take immediate corrective actions to minimize rejects and extend container life..
